Friday 5: Proposition B, Pure Water Cost, Problem Principals

Here are the five San Diego news stories to know for the week of April 5.

Here are Scott Lewis’ five things you need to know about for the week of April 1-5 :

  1. Back in 2016, San Diego City Councilwoman Barbara Bry supported Proposition B, the city’s legally dubious 2012 pension reform measure to eliminate pensions. Now, as she runs for mayor, she’s changed. 
  2. San Diego Unified determined former Serra High principal Vincent Mays harassed employees and faked his diploma. It gave him a central office job, then paid him not to work for 17 months and agreed not to tell future employers about his conduct.
  3. The city is preparing to divorce Civic San Diego, effectively ending a years-long experiment aimed at stimulating downtown revitalization.
  4. San Diego water customers will soon pay $6 to $13 more a month to fund the first part of the city’s new recycled water project, according to a newly released estimate.
  5. Mayor Kevin Faulconer roasts Assemblyman Brian Maienschein for switching political parties.
